Default How old?

How old is this little guy? Does this buck look 1.5 or 2.5? I can't decide because I have never seen a yearling with that much antlers. If he is 1.5 he is going to be a heckuva a buck someday. This is from East Texas by the way.

He is going to be really nice in a couple of years to already be throwing out trash and what looks to be split brows that young.

That must be some limbs, because that is a little 7pt in the back. There is no doubt in my mind that the other 2 are yearlings.

I guess he must be 2.5, but i was hoping for a super yearling. Compared to other deer on the property, there is no way he is older than 2.5. I just cant age bucks in the summer time, they always look younger than they actually are.

Yea they do but he is for sure not 3.5 yet cause his neck does not run all the way down to his chest, that is a tell tell sign of 3.5.. I would also say 2.5 I dont think he is a yearling, but he is nice for a 2 year old
